Thank you, Lindsay, this is exactly what I needed to hear 🙂
Somehow we are all led to believe that relationships fix everything, but ultimately you are the same person with the same insecurities. No one can fix that for you. I guess I thought that somewhere along the lines, it would be nice to have someone by my side to support me through my ‘journey’. There are all these things that I would like to work on, and it’s true that I didn’t want to be alone in that process. There have been some things that I was able to change, and which made me happier about myself, but when I noticed I was still alone it was starting to make me think that I didn’t try hard enough or something.
I can understand what you mean when you say you can still feel very alone in a relationship. So it’s good that you brought that up because it puts things in perspective. Having an accepting attitude seems to bring you a lot of peace instead of consuming you. So i will continue working more on my own passions and dreams and try to focus less on things that I do not have.
